I was one of the first students enrolled in the newly developed Bachelor of Health (Nursing) when introduced to CQUniversity. I had such a great experience that when I decided to do post-graduate qualifications continuing with CQU was a natural choice. The lecturers were truly inspirational.
My Bachelor assisted me to obtain a job with Queensland Ambulance Service where I was a paramedic for 22 years. My Masters assisted with my career moves in the QAS from being a flight and intensive care paramedic to a clinical support officer in education. It also assisted with my current career in higher education.
I am currently the Deputy Dean (Learning and Teaching) within the School of Medical and Applied Science.
As well as saving countless lives and really making a difference to people’s lives, I’m proud of my career which has included developing the Bachelor of Paramedic Science program, being promoted to Deputy Dean and publications including journals, text book chapters, conferences and seminar presentations.
